Stencilling with Springtime Impressions Thinlits

I love the soft and subtle technique of stencilling with Whisper White Ink.  I tried it here on a returning colour which will be available from 1 June.  Coastal Cabana was one of the colours that was around when I first discovered Stampin' Up! over five years ago, and was a favourite of mine at that time.

I used the gorgeous butterfly as a stencil, which was die cut from the new Springtime Impressions Thinlits.

The lovely curly sentiment is from the new Stitched All Around stamp set.

It's just a really simple little card made using an oldie but goodie stencilling technique.  It's great to stretch those products, getting the most from them.  Intricate dies can create really pretty stencils.  I hope this inspires you to go look at your craft stash, because I wouldn't mind betting you have some pretty butterfly dies lurking somewhere within it.

Well I hope you approve of my project today.  Thanks for looking and I hope you will pop back again.

Bye for now.

  1. Sorry, need clarificaiton. Just love love love this card. Did you die cut the butterfly and then use the cardstock butterfly as a stencil or did you use the die as the stencil. SORRY - new to cardmaking but learning heaps from you.

    Warm Wishes: Mal

  2. Hi Mary-Ann. Thanks for your kind comment. I die cut the butterfly in Whisper White card stock and used that as my stencil. Hope you are enjoying your new hobby xx

    1. Linda, thank you for the clarification. This is my morning's "chore". So loving your teachings.

  3. I asked Linda the same question Mary-Ann on her Face Book group. Yes the die was cut on thick Whisper White card stock and then used as a stencil (not the die used as a stencil). So I suspect that there are many different dies that would look good as a stencil if they have a lot of detail in them. I love the simplicity, clean quality of this card of Linda's that makes it such a quality looking card design. I am definitely going to be looking in my die stash to see what I have that I can cut out of thick card stock and use as a stencil on a card design. Thank you Linda for sharing this with us crafters. xx

  4. I love this card and am certainly going to try the technique.
